Keep Your Grandkids Safe
Make sure medications are out of reach
Grandparents and their grandchildren have a special bond.
But when the kids are visiting, grandparents need to make sure their medications are safely out of reach and that that their prescription bottles have child-proof caps.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says a study by a hospital in Alabama found that more than one-third of pills swallowed by children involved their grandparents' prescription medications.
